Discovery+ is NOT a channel.  It is a (paid) STREAMING SERVICE.  It includes all of the channels in the Discovery family like TLC, HGTV, A&E and Lifetime. 

If you get Discovery in your package, nothing will change.

All I can say is, we pay enough as it is for this service. If they insist on putting programs on a Paid Streaming Service, they will lose viewers. I will not pay an extra $7 per month just to see some not so great shows.

Apparently you are unclear on how a streaming service works. 

Again, you are NOT LOSING any programming that is included in your package and you don't have to pay any extra.  *smdh*

Yes, we are as some programs that were on Discovery, will now be on Discovery Plus .. But in a lot of cases, they will usually be on another channel later on.

I do understand, but does not mean I have to like it. I do not need to make these companies or their so called stars, any richer by paying to watch them. I already pay for cable service / internet and it is about $210 per month. Extra fees are not viable or desirable.

@bruceb   WHY WOULD YOU SUBSCRIBE TO DISCOVERY+ IF YOU ARE GETTING ALL OF THE PROGRAMMING IN YOUR UVERSE PACKAGE????

@JefferMC   Do we just go ahead and throw in the towel now?

Also: U-Verse is NOT cable.

We didn't lose programming when Disney+ or ESPN+ launched. Did we lose programming when HBO Max launched?

New direct streaming packages are a new way for content providers to try to make money.  They put exclusives there to try to lure people who already have access to the linear channels to pay for them.  ESPN does it with ESPN+.  Disney+ offers things not on any of their linear channels.  Discovery+ is no different.


If you don't like this, that's fine, but it's not AT&T's fault or problem to solve.

@JefferMC do not forget CBS ACCESS that offers exclusive content and programming for $5.99 a month with commercial or $9.99 a month without.

HALLMARK has Feelin for about $5 a month...

For those that want all carte pricing instead of a bundle they can probably get it with streaming content but not likely saving per month. 

Even Netflix with less content since Disney pulled programming for Disney+ has raised their pricing by $1 or $2 depending on plan. 

New content production during the pandemic must be costly.
